For almost two weeks now, Ryan has begun the journey from diapers to big girl panties. She's been ready for a while to start potty training, but busy schedules, pregnancy sickness and other things; it's been pushed back a bit. She was getting to where she would bring us a new diaper when she needed to be changed and exclaim: "Change my butt!"
Jonas really took the initiative on it and started her in panties over the weekend and would bring her up to the potty. After all the weekend success, it was up to me for the week to keep it going. Unfortunately, she got a stomach bug and had to go back to diapers for a day. Even with the diapers, she was still asking to go to the potty. Poor girl, but she was right back to it the next day when that had passed!
Throughout the week, after a few accidents, she was beginning to get the hang of it. We bought her some star stickers and put a big piece of paper of the bathroom door for her to put her stars on when she pee-peed on the potty. We even bought her a new Pet Shop toy to really get her excited about the potty. It didn't take long for her to catch on and she loved picking a new star to add to her "Potty Star" poster. She also loves to pick out the panties she is going to wear. We're evening have some success with going #2 on the potty!
As of now, she's gone 4 days accident free! We have yet to venture out with just panties on, but I think we'll try the soon. She wears a pull-up if we're out of the house, but still refuses to pee in it. She's even asked to go when we were at a friend's and used their bathroom! She asked at Target too, but didn't go. Oh well! I am so proud of her, she's done so well in such a short time. Potty training has been really easy with, she's such a big girl. Go Ryan!!
